Little Players Auditions

JULY 12, 2022

Miss Nelson can't control her crazy classroom because she's just too nice. But when she disappears, her replacement is the hard-as-nails, detention-loving, recess-canceling, homework-overloading substitute teacher Viola Swamp! With the Big Test approaching, the kids suddenly realize how much they miss Miss Nelson and they'll do anything—including hiring a private eye—to solve the mystery of her disappearance and bring her back. Auditions for Little Players' "Miss Nelson is Missing!" will be held Tuesday, July 12, 2022, 6-8 p.m. CDT at the Grand Opera House. There are roles for three girls (3rd to 6th grade in fall), 3 boys (3rd to 6th grade in fall), and 3 to 4 adults (6th to 12th grade in fall). Performance dates are Aug. 12-14.

Upcoming Auditions: The Crucible

AUGUST 15, 2022

This exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. The story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife’s arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie—and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others. Auditions will be held Monday, Aug. 15, 2022, at 7 p.m. CDT. There are roles for 10 males and 10 females. Performance dates are Oct. 7-9 and 13-15.
